How to prevent dry rot tires
Posted 12 November 2011 - 11:56 AM
I don't run my road tractor enough to wear out the tires before they dry rot. I just had to replace the fronts due to this. I did find some used tires but they were still expensive. Gator had the same problem had to put tubes in. Lawn mower due soon.

buy some lubricant from ed miller
keep them covered from sun and air ( travel trailer store)
wear them out before old age sets in
any one have the real answer?

The tires that I have the best luck with are the old BFGoodrich rice and cain tires. They age really well. I don't know why but they seem to go on forever. I buy them at the salvage yard & tire shop whenever I get a chance (they are cheap also).

I have heard of using brake fluid. Any thoughts?
